Inspired by Arkady Roytham's beautiful sketchbooks and Mark Kennedy's inciteful sketching exhortations (parts 1,2,3 and 4 they are well worth a read!) I've started sketching all the more. I picked up a small moleskine at B&N but it was already full 5 days later, but it's great because they fit in my jeans pocket. I also started keeping a sketchbook on my dashboard to sketch at lights and in traffic. That way when I'm in houston at 5:30pm it's a win-win situation. Drawing cars also seems to be a way to learn design. You get inside the designer's head, why this line? See how this mirrors that. I suppose it's the same with nature too.

These are some Zombie illustrations I did recently for an online novel. Not having the drawing skills to draw a zombie outright, I mined my sketchbooks for people family members and friends I could modify into zombies. I then imported these as planes into bryce and made dystopian environments. I also used trees and cars form my sketchbook and pulled the telephone poles from a previous project. I was pretty happy with the above, as it was all made from scratch. I have also found Picassa great for certain kinds of post work. The bottom two use photos I took + the zombies.
